Yellow In Spring


Last year, we had a very early, unusually warm, and utterly glorious spring. I was sanding and painting the deck in April. Alas, it was a once in a lifetime experience. This spring is more typical of the Maritimes. The yellow highlights in the garden are the only bright spots with day after day of clouds and rain.
Here is an old Nova Scotia refrain:

Rain, drizzle, and fog
We might as well live in a bog
The streets are all wet
And still all we get
Is rain, drizzle, and fog!
